In order to keep our schedule to redecorate the living room, we decided to fix up our letter holder. It was just plain white and was adding nothing to the room. Inspired by our current love for everything ombre' we figured- why not paint it ombre'? Here's a step by step tutorial on how we did it!
You will need:
- Something to spray paint (letter holder)
- Primer
- 3 spray paint colors
Our letter holder had places for labeling so we removed those first.
Spray a primer.
Spray paint one color about 3/4 of the way down. Let it dry.
With another spray paint color, spray paint half of the way up. (We used a lime green.)
When you spray paint this layer, cover the bottom completely and as you move up, lift the spray paint can further away to create a fading effect.
When it has all dried, take another color and spray about 1/4 of the way up. (We used neon green.)
Make sure you lift away towards the top to create the fading effect.
This is the letter holder hanging on our wall all finished! When we have completely finished the living room we will show you what this looks like with all the other decor! You can see the decor in the other rooms of our house here!
